Dorian Gray Aboard the Straight Talk Express

Friday, September 19th, 2008

John McCain is a changed man. He seems to have gone from scrappy old dude to doddering old dude in the past few weeks. Could it be the addition of Alaska's First Dude and wife to the campaign that kicked off the whole Republican era of Extreme DudatudeTM? Rumors have circulated ...

One Possible Solution to Sleazy Political Ads

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

A letter to the editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer had a solution to all of these sleazy political ads during the presidential campaign. Basically — nothing. No regulations or restrictions. BUT: During the presidential debates, all of these commercials and hit pieces would be aired, right there in front of the ...

Uncovering The Reckless Ambitions Of John McCain

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

On the one hand, I understand the calls for ignoring Sarah Palin and focusing instead upon John McCain. On the other hand, the choice of Palin is so utterly astounding that it cannot be ignored...and it most certainly reflects upon the judgment of John McCain and his assertion that he ...

John McSame- “I’m always for less regulation.”

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

As John McSame does another giant flip-flop on who he wants you to think he is, it's helpful to remember that as a politician, John McSame often describes himself as "the greatest deregulator" ever interviewed. Why, it was just a few months ago, in March 2008, that McSame said this in ...

The Straight Talk Express to Sarah’s Lying Limo Service

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

It's only been a few days since Hurricane Sarah breached the political levees along the Potomac. Within moments of her Minneapolis coronation, many began asking legitimate questions about her qualifications. It's fair to say most found her wanting. While the campaign shopped her around for a sufficiently deferential first interviewer ...

Sarah Palin and Animal Cruelty

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Why does Sarah Palin hate wolves so much she tries to use her office to fund animal cruelty with taxpayer revenues? We’ve been hearing about Sarah Palin’s talents as a hunter and “sportswoman.” Overall the net impact seems to be mainly the novelty factor; a lot of Americans fall on each ...

McCain-Palin: The Dark Side Of Politics

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Everything has an opposite. Day and night. Happy and sad. Good and bad. Progression and regression. The list is endless. How does this apply to the current presidential election? It's easy to say that Democrats and Republicans are opposites, but in truth, both parties share similar philosophies about governing. Ideologically ...

McCain, Palin: Lay Preachers at Our Lady of the Asshats

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

I was raised Methodist. Not one of those fire-breathing, tongue-speaking, snake-handling Methodists (although my grandparents were a bit loony that way). No, we were more suburban Methodists. We were sticklers for thou shalt not murder and solid behind the whole thou shalt not steal thing, but as far as the ...

Little Man in the Big Spotlight

Monday, September 8th, 2008

John McCain relishes his self-annointed role as a maverick. He mentions it as often as he mentions being a POW and he mentions that as often as Rudy Guiliani mentions 9/11. In his maverick myth, the hero - played poorly by McCain - is a sort of modern day Yosemite ...

What Sarah Palin and the GOP Really Think About Women

Friday, September 5th, 2008

It's like Cranky said over here. Another reminder why this election is so important. And it's kind of sad we have to still be going down this road. After all, with record debts, a failing economy, energy concerns, environmental concerns, wars abroad and the whole lot of corruption and internal ...
